Anyone using Ultegra 6700 shifters on their cross bike? I put them on mine and it seems the cable pull is really short. Seems I need to run my pads closer to the rim than with older Shimano, or with SRAM. Haven't decided yet if it is worth taking them off and going with something else. I am a sucker for the hidden shifter cables..... Maybe it is back to SRAM.

yes, thats the same problem with the new shimano stuff. you can run into problems on the road with non shimano brakes as well. the pull ratio is different. have you tried running you hanger higher, might give some more pull
